19090, SATB with opt. solo, $1.65
This Hayes arrangement of Graham Kendrick’s powerful exhortation to spread the good news of Jesus will bring your congregation to their feet, ready to rejoice that the Lord reigns and to share that truth with the world! Equipped with a toe-tapping rock beat and gospel rhythms and harmonies, this anthem is exciting from beginning to end. It is strophic in form, with an optional solo in the first verse. The third verse showcases the tenors and basses on the melody, backed up by 3-part women. The refrain is very “catchy,” and your congregation will love singing (and clapping!) with your choir each time they sing it. A “hot” riff for SSA takes the final refrain to a new level as the piece climaxes with “The Lord reigns!” The rocking piano accompaniment is great alone or could be enhanced by the addition of brass, sax, and rhythm. Choose this anthem to infuse energy into any service or program, especially one with an emphasis on evangelism. Medium difficulty, with a few rhythmic challenges.
